Simple Arduino Traffic Lights

Have you ever made a city out of Legos? I know i have built many of them but they all missed something… Traffic lights! So i decided to make my very own traffic light setup from my arduino board. Step 2: Get the components I assume you already have an adruino board, and maybe also […] The post Simple Arduino Traffic Lights appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Bike taillight with a twist using Arduino

Let’s face it. Taillights are boring. At best they go ‘blink blink – look at me! I’m blinking – woohoo’ all the time. And they’re always red. Very creative. We can do better than that, maybe not much, but still better than just ‘blink blink’. I was riding my bike during new year celebrations and […] The post Bike taillight with a twist using Arduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Arduino Fixed-point Vehicle Proximity Detector

This is the high-tech version of hanging a tennis ball from the ceiling from a piece of string.  Of course, if you have two different types of vehicles, that tennis ball isn’t going to land in the same place on both of them.  This project can prevent hundreds of dollars in dry-wall repair and bicycle […] The post Arduino Fixed-point Vehicle Proximity Detector appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Garage Genie – Parking & Remote Control using Arduino

The Garage Genie is a car automation Arduino gadget. Click on the two images above to see the animated explanation. It aims to do a few things: 1. The “traffic lights” tells you when you’ve inched your car up close enough when parking. The lights are control by an Arduino using an ultrasonic distance sensor. […] The post Garage Genie – Parking & Remote Control using Arduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Custom OBD II Gauge in With OEM Look using arduino

https://github.com/stirobot/arduinoModularTFTgaugesI built a custom OBD II (on board diagnostics version 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On-board_diagnostics) gauge in the clock of my Subaru BRZ (GT86, FRS) and a lot of people wanted me to build them one. Here is how you can build one of your own. My wife is about to give birth to our second son and […] The post Custom OBD II Gauge in With OEM Look using arduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Arduino Ultrasonic Parking Spotter

For my first instructable, I’d like to present The Parking Spotter. This is not a new concept, I know. However, this build was done specifically to suit my needs/wants/materials already in my possession. Typically, a project begins with an idea, parts are then gathered, and the building commences. In my case I looked around at […] The post Arduino Ultrasonic Parking Spotter appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Interactive Child’s Mobile using Arduino

What can you make with fluorescent acrylic as the inspiration?  We chose to make a glow-in-the-dark baby mobile, with an accompanying toy.  This project was completed as a part of the Computing and Craft class at Olin College of Engineering. Materials: – Craft Materials: – Fluorescent acrylic (1 square foot of each of the following […] The post Interactive Child’s Mobile using Arduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

Earfingers: Hear with your hands using Arduino

First and foremost, I must acknowledge that I am standing on the shoulders of giants, and that every giant is standing on the shoulders of giants (such as all contributors to instructables). If it weren’t for the unknowably many people who had the mindfulness to freely share information, this would have been utterly impossible; I […] The post Earfingers: Hear with your hands using Arduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.

High Speed Photo Arduino : HighSpeeduino

Today is High Speed Photography day ! The concept is to take a ‘long’ exposure photograph, 4 seconds say, in a (very) dark room (a bathroom in our case). You end up with a completely black picture, right ? If you burst a flash (about a millisecond for a standard flash) then you get a […] The post High Speed Photo Arduino : HighSpeeduino appeared first on Use Arduino for Projects.
